Intermittent FMLA leave is subject to abuse by those few who want to game the system. And that can be seriously disruptive.

That can also be disruptive.

The good thing is that you and your line managers can keep such disruption to a minimum – if you know and apply three key techniques for dealing with intermittent leave.
